Repairing a Live High Voltage Power Line Is Absolutely Insane

Imagine fixing a live high voltage power line. Imagine flying a helicopter to go fix that live high voltage power line. Yes, a helicopter that could chop off the line and destroy everything. Imagine wrapping an electrical band-aid on that live high voltage power line. Yes, using your hands to wrap wire around the damaged wire bursting with electricity. This is one scary job. Watch it.
